Free Download: JEB1 “Sand June” ZIP File

avatars-000094926222-fnm6fn-t500x500

Calling this a “leak” would be clickbait, but it is a leak of sorts, albeit one with JEB1’s permission. What we have here is a zip file consisting of 19 tracks that were sent exclusively to DJs and labels at the beginning of June.  Unfortunately for JEB1, PC issues mean none of these tracks will end up seeing an official release, but it does mean that I get to give you the tracks instead!
You can download the full zip below, where you can also stream and check out a few of my personal highlights too. Continue reading

Interview: Boylan on Edgem, Solo Stuff & More

Edgem

2015, depending on who you talk to, means different things for Grime. For some, it’s the year that the vocal side of the scene was kicked out of its slumber by hungry young MCs like MicTy and Jammz. Other people will tell you it’s the year that “America discovered Grime”, but, when the time comes to look back, 2015 could be the year of the “super producer crew” (we’ll work out a better name later). Beatgatherers, Silk Road Assassins, Krud Fam… the list of people to watch for is longer every week, but for now, one crew leads the way – Edgem.
With a new EP, “Terror Fortress” out at midnight (13/7/2015), I spoke to Boylan about Edgem, hooking up with JT and Dullah, Drum & Bass, and more. Continue reading

Where as some people struggle for ideas, others, like Dubzta, seem to have them in abundance, which means they have tracks laying around everywhere. And that’s what “The Clearout EP” is, 20 tracks recorded by Dubzta between 2011-2015 pulled together and given to you, free!
There’s a bit of everything on here, from pure grime bangers like “Skengy” to 4X4 and Trap. There are vocal features from the likes of Hazman and Vader, remixes of tracks by Wiley, SkinzMann, Sir Spyro, collabs with Adam Mac and RSK, and that’s barely scratching the surface. You can download “The Clearout EP” now, below. Continue reading

Guest Mix : DSL Official

0EOySAHC

It’s easy to write up something for this mix from DSL Official. If you’ve clocked him lately on Radar, Mode, Nasty FM, or anywhere else for that matter, you’ll notice that the guy is consistent as fuck with the heavy blends and chops, so, with the help of the Oxford Dictionaries list of synonyms for “brutal”, here’s a quick one from DSL that can only be described as “savage”, “vicious”, “violently brutal”, and “barbaric”. Enjoy! Continue reading
